This Steep Roof Ladder Was Inspired by a Mountain Goat’s Impressive Ability to Climb

This is the Goat Steep Assist, an innovative roof ladder that hooks onto your roof and is designed to increase the safety of roof work, a roof inspection, or cleaning the gutters and putting up Christmas lights. Inspired by a mountain goat’s incredible ability to ascend and descend steep cliffs, the Goat Steep Assist is basically “a roof for the top of your ladder.”

This clever steep roof ladder has three six-foot adjustable poles that connect to each other and large plastic handles that help to maintain stability. The handles also avoid having your hands touch hot shingles. It also has a huge hook attached to the very top that grabs a hold of the roof’s edge.



The Goat Steep Assist can hold up to 350lbs. The inventors of this safety-driven roof ladder advise that the equipment not be used on roofs steeper than 45 degrees and to ensure – and double-check that the device perfectly fits on the roof before ascending.
